Early in the film we see Keith's apartment from the outside in full daylight, while he rejects a teaching position from his agent on the phone. We cut to the inside of his apartment, as ConEd cuts his power leaving him in total darkness. Did day turn to night over the span of a few seconds? See more »

This movie is totally underrated!
26 February 2015 | by (Istanbul, Turkey) – See all my reviews

OK, I had to write a review for this movie.. actually, it's my first review here.

Nowadays, there aren't many movies making one smile or giving some good lesson..and I think this movie is very very warm-hearted and shows exactly the reality! There isn't one scene where I can say: "Wow, that was much exaggerated!", 'cause it isn't.. Besides being a family-friendly movie, it speaks to every generation, good for the young and the old. Hugh Grant is really someone who can make you laugh with his cold and cool attitude and his bizarre sarcasm. I'm very grateful he did this movie. All other actors are also rightly chosen and a plus for Marisa Tomei for looking awesome!
